Fall Creek Trail
December 7, 1975
Six people assembled at 19th & Patterson on a cold but otherwise nice morning
that promised to improve later and did just that.
We left town in two cars and picked up another passenger at Unity store on our way
up Fall Creek.
At the bridge three miles up from Dolly Varden camp we left one car and seven people
crowded into one car for the ride up to the trail head farther up Fall Creek where
everyone put on boots and packs and got ready to hike down the trail.
We started hiking around 10 o’clock, the weather, was fine, no rain, leaves and
trees were wet, clean and very green, it was a beautiful day.
The creeks were running full and gave some trouble in crossing.
We arrived at Bedrock camp at noon and had lunch and soon were on our way again.
We stopped at the small cave farther down the trail and by 1:30 were at the lower car.
We then went back for the car we left up the river and shuttled everyone down river to
the lower end of the trail, at Dolly Varden then we all hiked up river some two miles
to where one side creek was running pretty full, we decided not to cross it but return
to the cars and call it a day.
We hiked some seven of the nine miles of trail.
We returned to town tired but happy.
On the trip were
Ruth Ten Eyck,
Merle Traudt, the leader.
